I have a sugestion :

To prevent know malicious programs to infect you system, try create a folder
with same name of the worm. If you have a worm named msblast.exe in system32
folder, delete the file (you if have it), and create a msblast.exe folder in
system32 folder.

Then, if a malware try to install youself in system32 folder, the Windows
don´t recognize the file...

Tomás.
